The team behind Cassette and NETTE open riina restaurant in Dubai

Located in Tilal Al Ghaf, the healthy hotspot opens in December.

Dubai’s Tilal Al Ghaf community is set to welcome a new restaurant. The all-day dining restaurant riina is opening on 9 December, and looks set to be a stylish spot. So, if you’re a fan of Mediterranean food, here’s what to expect. 

Located in the new development by Majid Al Futtaim, riina is a collaboration between Dubai-based entrepreneur Nina Ali and the founders of Cassette and NETTE. Drawing on their collective expertise and passions, it is inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle. 


riina is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The name itself means pure and epitomises the team’s approach to the food. The menu prides itself on being made with fresh, additive-free, and preservative-free ingredients. The food includes nutrient-packed breakfasts, healthy lunches and comfort dishes. Plus, the drinks include coffees, mocktails, teas, health shots and fresh smoothies and juices.

The breakfast highlights include Smoked Salmon Flatbread with whipped cream cheese, cherry tomatoes, paprika almonds and chilli flakes. The lunch and dinner dishes range from the lighter Crunch Quinoa Salad to Seabass in Phyllo Puff. Plus, dishes include Grilled Lamb Chops with potatoes, chermoula, broken fennel yoghurt sauce, and The Burger with a blend of chuck and brisket.


The interior architect company, H2R Design, is behind riina’s design. The décor aims to bring the outdoors indoors and boasts earthy tones, floral murals on the walls, natural materials and soft curved arches. Plus, the expansive windows let in lots of light, and the outdoor terrace overlooks the park and blue lagoon. 

riina is open daily from 7am to 11pm.
